Bandra West, Mumbai, seafront. It’s a place to remember. A place where rich meets poor
There are many young people, some locals, but also Indian tourist just enjoying the fresh ocean water. Fully dressed they sit in the water and enjoy the waves. A father and his son have a nice walk, obviously both being part of a wealthier background. In the background some women sit and chat.
A few meters away some very small colorful houses reflect a completely different social level. There live marginalized people – in very poor conditions. The women are washing clothes and dry them on the rocks. A man is washing his hairs. There is waste and dirt. Some children are playing (or washing). Somebody is taking a bath there.
Life means contrast
It’s not far away from one of the richest parts of India where many Bollywood stars have houses.
It’s a point where everyone and everything meets. A lot of diversity. In all senses. It’s Mumbai. It’s India. It’s our world.
